Espresso Chocolate Shortbread Cookies TWD

I grew up with shortbread, Irish people are all over it and my family was no exception. My nana made great shortbread and my mom makes tasty shortbread cookies. There was never chocolate or espresso in our shortbread and now I am thinking perhaps we were missing out. I loved these cookies. I baked them up tonight and promptly ate four. Needless to say I am taking them to work tomorrow and I am vowing not to eat any more. Poor S. likely won’t get a taste test, poor guy.

Thanks to Donna of Life’s too short not to eat dessert first for choosing this recipe. Check out the Link page on TWD to find out what other bakers got up to.



Oatmeal Breakfast Muffins TWD

I love these muffins. That’s pretty much all I have to say.  I whipped these up tonight and have packed them up for S. to take home. He taste tested them and gave them a thumbs up. I asked for more descriptions but he couldn’t come up with any winning quotes so you will just have to take my word on them.

Thanks to Natalie of Oven Love for such a great pick! Be sure to head on over to her blog for the recipe.


PS I went back to work today after a nice summer break. We should be posting a little more regularly around here now that I am home. All I have baked all summer are crisps. But really what more do you need in the summer but fruit, sugar and an oat mixture?
